I have been to France 5 times and never have been treated so badly at a restaurant. The owner should be ashamed at the way we were treated and decide no soup for us☹️Very sad and made me think about never going back to France, was that upset, you can't refuse to serve people when a place is half empty.

We went in with 6 others dinners the owner/chef sat the first 2 down and then 4 were seated he looked at us and said no reservations? No openings!!! Are you kidding me there were several empty tables. Do not associate with a place that's descriminates against people, for what ever reason, rude, uncalled for behavior, I don't care how... More

Well rated place!!! Family run business, owner very friendly with good English and Italian... Excellent fresh food and decent wine choice. But..... Mind the menu: there are only 3 fixed menu with various choice to choose from. He gave the possibility to mix the plates from one menu to another. At the end, the price? Much more than the menu....

L'Hémisphère is one of those place where you want to go back again and again. I enjoy particularly the San Pietro fish dish. However also the other dishes are absolutely worth trying. And you are being served by one of the most charming hosts I have ever encountered. When you are in the neighbourhood of Martigues, don't miss a visit... More

Family restaurant, real value for money, the menu included 6 oysters for starters which is very good considering the menu price. The owner always takes time to talk about the food and makes an excellent champagne cocktail to start the meal. Best to reserve the weekends.

I decided to visit this restaurant following the reviews I read here. I was a little worried about getting a place but in the end I was alone there apart from an elderly couple. I chose the basic set menu with complimentary caraffe of rose wine, which was surprisingly good. As a starter I had sea snails, which were delicious.... More
